The search for solutions to the antibiotic resistance problem is moving beyond traditional antibiotic drugs, leading researchers to some unexpected places. The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts in the field of antibiotic development to present their research on novel solutions for overcoming superbugs that have developed resistance to traditional antimicrobials.

Topics to be covered:

  • AncientBiotics: Medieval medicine and modern applications
  • Identifying and developing novel antimicrobial peptides from Komodo dragons
  • Coopting the enemy: using biofilms to find antibiotics
